Family-owned Italian restaurant Artú will close one of its beloved locations, though diners will have until May 30 to say goodbye.

The restaurant announced on its social media pages Tuesday that its 89 Charles St. outpost will shutter at the end of the month.

“We wish to thank each and every one of you for your patronage and friendship over our 25-year tenure on Beacon Hill,” the post read. “The journey has been most memorable. From birthdays, engagements, to anniversaries and more, it has been our honor to be a part of the most special occasions for you and your families.”


Artú did not immediately respond to’s request for comment.

This isn’t the end of the road for the restaurant, though: Artú’s North End outpost, located at 6 Prince St., will remain open. Diners who want to enjoy one final meal from the Beacon Hill location can stop by for takeout from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays through Sundays until May 30.

Opened in February 1992, Artú has been serving the Beacon Hill and North End neighborhoods for more than 25 years, starting with sandwiches and cured and roasted meats before expanding its menu to include plates of house-made pasta and hearty chicken marsala. Since COVID-19 struck, the Italian spot has partnered with Feed the Frontlines to provide meals to health care workers. It is currently offering takeout at both locations.
